Lidia's story

Lidia is 25 years old and lives in the town of Chimore, in the province of Carrasco in the city of Cochabamba. She is in a common-law relationship with Daniel with whom they have three children. Lidia works in agriculture in a union called Progreso about 22.5 kilometers from the town of Chimore. She works with her husband and they produce plantains. Together with her husband they took a new path starting with nothing.

Lidia is requesting a loan for the implementation of plantain crops so they may have more income and be able to help their children finish their degree. She dreams of a better future for her children as she couldn’t finish her degree. Daniel wants his children to get a degree and to help people in the area.
